On the TENTH day of Christmas The Spice Trader gave to me:


DUKKAH  is a traditional Egyptian spice mix. It is often blended with roasted nuts and sprinkled on flat bread with olive oil.

1:1 spice to nuts. If you want to add roasted nuts (hazelnuts or almonds) then blend 1 part crushed nuts to 1 part spice. Because our spices do not contain salt, you should add some to taste.

Without nuts, DUKKAH makes a lovely addition to a simple oil and vinegar salad dressing. It is also delicious on fish, and you can put it in dipping olive oil as a snack. 

A recipe for salad dressing

1 cup olive oil

1/3 red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp dukkah

1/8 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Let the dukkah soak in the red wine vinegar for 10 minutes and then whisk in the olive oil. Then add the slat and pepper.
